Their CALL goes out to ALL the earth

from ~ Psalm 19

The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament* proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words;
their voice is not heard;
4 yet their voice* goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.

Hidden from the wise and intelligent, but revealed to infants:

28 ‘Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’

Their voice goes out to ALL the earth:

4 Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and 5like living stones, let yourselves be built* into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Baptized into Divine Life, immersed in a common destiny, we become members of this universal Mystery of Christ’s Priesthood.  This is a not a call to individual salvation or exaltation, but a call to mutual and cosmic transfiguration.
